VIENNA (AP) These museum goers didn't just leave their coats at the coat check. They handed over their shirts, trousers and underwear.
Everything, in fact, except their shoes and socks. After all, the stone floor can get chilly when you're touring an art exhibit in the nude, which was what more than 60 art lovers did in a special after-hours showing at Vienna's prestigious Leopold museum.
For many, the tour of "Nude Men from 1800 to Today" an exhibit of 300 paintings, photographs, drawings and sculptures focused on the bare male was a goose-bump-raising instance of life imitating art.
